DIY Garden Trellis

A garden trellis, a year in the making.

Last year, we bought a few free standing garden trellises in hopes of giving the corner of our yard some charm and create some additional privacy.  

Admittedly, I'm getting a bit spoiled.  My husband's competency is now raising my bar of expectations. 

So, when a year went by and the garden trellis sat so beautiful and yet so woefully neglected, hidden behind our garage.  My expectations became that said garden trellis needed to be completed asap.

Dutifully, the master got to work.

A structure was created.

Details were added.

A charming garden trellis was a day!

And, then, a big gust of wind came by and this beautiful garden trellis was knocked over.  

That didn't deter the master, though.  He persevered.  He created.  He conquered.

The garden trellis is now complete.

The bar has been raised again. 


  1. What a beautiful spot to have in your yard. I love it!

  2. I like that you push each other to do better than before. And what a lovely upgrade. I love the details on the posts that go overhead. Now build a bench + a tiny version for the fairies :). PS #FF'd you on Twitter with DIY Mama because you 2 are DIY mavens & should know one another.

  3. What is it about guys building things that is SO HOT!! love your trellis. I bet I could find something similar on a pretty good sale right now:) thanks for the idea!

  4. Job well done as always! You're a lucky gal to be living with a master. ;)

  5. Amy that looks fabulous!! I am so jealous of your handy husband! Enjoy your Labor Day in that beautiful yard :)

    1. Thanks so much Elena. He certainly is handy...sometimes just not that motivated :)

  6. Amy that looks so pretty, great job Mr WWH especially after it blew over. I hope it wasn't too much work to get it back up. Very charming.

  7. I don't know why some projects sit for so long, but they do here too. Then when you finally get them done, you wonder what took so long. Your guy did a great job and I'm glad he didn't let the wind deter him. Beautiful project and you know I'm taking all the landscaping tips I can get, so please tell what keeps it from blowing over? (I don't see the rock and rope in the final picture.)

  8. I love it! I have been wanting to do something like that in the corner of my yard where my trumpet vine is out of control and desperately needs something new to grow on besides the fence. What a handy guy you have there!

  9. Go Mr. WWH!!! I love seeing a man at his craft. :) And a woman who nudges just so to get things done.


I am head over heels you took the time to leave me a comment.
